Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKA-2006:027: xorg-x11

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the xorg-x11 package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKA-2006:027 (xorg-x11).

A misapplied patch in a recent X.org updated caused keyboard
layout problems which resulted in some users being unable to use
the CTRL-ALT-function key combination to switch to a console, as
well as other keyboard mapping issues.
Updated packages have been re-patched to correct these issues.
